A potential first in nearly two decades: All the key stats ahead of Inter vs. Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face Inter at San Siro tonight looking to avenge the 3-0 defeat they suffered less than three weeks ago in Saudi Arabia in the Supercoppa.

The Rossoneri come into the game in questionable form given they have failed to win in their last six games, but the derby can be a match where form goes out of the window. You can read our pre-match preview here, while below are the best stats ahead of the game…

➤ This will be the 178th Serie A derby between Inter and Milan. Inter have won 67, Milan 54 (D56) – against no other side have the Rossoneri lost more top-flight matches (67, level with Juventus), whilst Inter have drawn their most games against a single side versus Milan in the competition (56)

➤ Milan have won their last two Serie A derbies against Inter, and could win three in a row for the first time since between November 2002 and February 2004 (four in a row).

➤ After their 3-2 victory in the reverse fixture, Milan could win both of their Serie A meetings against Inter in a season for the first time since the 2010/11 campaign under Massimiliano Allegri.

➤ Inter have lost their last two Serie A home derbies against Milan (both 1-2), as many defeats as they had in their previous 16 such games beforehand (W11 D3).

➤ No side has conceded fewer home goals than Inter in Serie A this season (five, level with Roma). In addition, only Napoli (28) have gained more points than Inter in home matches so far in the 2022/23 competition (24 in 10 games).

➤ Milan have lost their last three matches in all competitions; they last lost four games in a row between January and February 2017 under Vincenzo Montella.

➤ Milan conceded 18 goals in January 2023, the most they have ever conceded in a single month of a year in their history in all competitions (since 1929/30).

➤ No side has scored more Serie A goals than Inter in the last 30 minutes of play this season (14, level with Lazio). Meanwhile, only Cremonese (14) and Sampdoria (12) have conceded more goals than Milan (11) in the opening 30 minutes so far in the competition this term.

➤ Lautaro Martínez has scored six goals against Milan in all competitions; only against Cagliari (eight) has he scored more since he joined Inter. Should he score in this game, he will become the second-highest foreign scorer in the history of this fixture for Inter, only behind Stefano Nyers (11).

➤ Olivier Giroud has found the net in both his first two Serie A derbies against Inter (three goals); no Milan player has scored in their first three meetings against Inter in the competition in the three points-for-a-win era (since 1994/95).

  1. Looking at these stats it’s baffling that we have so many points. I will buy a cake and celebrate like it’s my birthday when Maignan comes back. That will hopefully be the last time I hear Tatas name.
